The heart of business is the manufacture of Nvidia graphics chip performance. The generalization of graphics chips in Intel Nvidia forced to refocus its activity on two points:
- The first is the production of graphics optimized for compute-intensive, these products are cutting a great success.
- Almost opposite the company released its Tegra chips, for mobile devices and with a heart ARM plus a generous graphics.
Nvidia will move to a new merging somehow the two ideas in order to become completely independent from Intel and to a lesser extent AMD in data centers. Indeed, its GP-GPU cards have beautiful develop enormous power, they remain dependent on central processors for the drive, assign tasks …. which confine them to the status of devices or co-processors.
The next step will be announced by NVIDIA to integrate one or more CPU cores in its GP-GPU cards.Thus, they become autonomous. The CPU cores will of course be based on the ARM architecture, the V8 to be more precise, which supports 64-bit.
This announcement should give more credit to the bright future predicted ARM chips in its data centers currently monopolized mostly by Intel.
